When doing IF and HST trainging, should fasting be done every day?
I am confused about Intermittent Fasting regimes.
(e.g. as summarised here: http://www.leangains.com/2008/06/bri...oaches-to.html )
In the various forms of IF - e.g. "The Warrior Diet", "The Fast-5 Diet", and "Leangains" diet - are the fasts done every day of the week?
I am doing HST training 3 days per week (usually Mon/Wed/Fri) - usually in the evenings. My problem is that surely I should be feeding and not fasting immediately after and also in the mornings after my training sessions.
- Any advice?
P.S. I am also wondering about the impact of time of day on fasting.
e.g. If I do the Leangains version, may I fast at both ends of the day?
(e.g. stop eating at 7PM, start eating at 11AM) ?
And if so, how different should my diet be in response to training days?
...And what happens if I dont finish training until 8:30PM - I am seriously supposed to fast until 11AM the next day?(!)

I think CDB already answered most of this yesterday, but if you are doing HST and IF then yes, still fast every day. I would personally use cardio as the workout on non-HST days.PRs:

Bench - 315 lbs
Deadlift - 635 lbs
